Imagine the efficiency of cutting your heating and AC bills in half or even more, especially in Chicago weather. That’s possible with a sustainably designed home. The custom built home at 3339 N Leavitt Street in Roscoe Village is a gorgeous example of this type of design. It’s not only highly efficient, it also has stunning design features.
What is an Eco home design? In general, a green home is built to reduce energy consumption and waste. The home at 3339 N Leavitt Street has the distinction of the Chicago Green Initiative Silver Award. Homes that receive this award have a substantial impact on the health and wellbeing of people and the planet. According to USGBC, green building is the practice of designing, constructing and operating buildings to maximize occupant health and productivity, use fewer resources, reduce waste and negative environmental impacts, and decrease life cycle costs.
This home has a highly energy efficient solar inverter system that powers the electric, heat and AC. It was built with insulated concrete forms (ICFs) that offer well-insulated, airtight, energy-efficient building enclosures. ICFs work well in Chicago’s volatile weather because of the strong impact resistance. Translation: huge savings in monthly energy bills.
The unique home at 3339 N Leavitt Street is now on the market. This 4 bedroom, 4.1 bathroom builder’s custom home is an innovative example of sustainable home design. It truly is the future of home design.
